and it changed the way it looks for the disease. how come? >> we think it's because there was such an outcry from the international health community. remember, a virus doesn't obey borders or boundaries, the virus can spread past the country's boundaries so the international community is saying, this has gone way out of control and there may be well over 100,000 cases here that are not documented. how do you know that you actually tested someone who may have had it, and there were rumors for months that there were si sick people that weren't being tested. china decided now that if you have symptoms that are consistent with this virus and your physician says so, a cough or shortness of breath, they can label you a coronavirus patient. also changes on the chest x-ray or ct scan. that's the reason for the chan change.

iranian weapons. it occurred a few days ago, including surface-to-air missiles and the arabian sea. the department of justice prosecutors had recommended 7-9 awkward timing, that all is years in prison. the president came out in a tweet earlier in the year and so released on the same day the senate passes a resolution that's ridiculous, horrible and unfair and the department of justice he coincidentally said limiting the president's war they would revise the guidelines but they insist that the president and the attorney general didn't talk. powers in the wake of that drone strike that killed the any in but listen to what elizabeth warren is saying should happen to the general. we pick apart. you decide. attorney general >> what the welcome, everybody. i'm neil cavuto. attorney general has done, we we'll be talking to should all be calling. if he won't resign, remember the bill cassidy, 1 of 8 republicans to go up against the president on that war powers attorney general can be impeached. we can't just sit on her hands. >> the president was asked about it a couple of times in the oval office on tuesday, and the president was asked, while your tweet was putting political pressure on the attorney general, the president said no. listen here. >> not at all. he was treated very badly, nine years recommended by four people, perhaps were mueller people. it was a whole set up and a

>> bill: it's and a trespassing resolution which would limit president trump's authority to launch military action against iran. and now it heads to the house. mike emanuel picks up the reporting live on the hill from there. this just went down about an hour ago. >> it was bipartisan 55-45 with eight republicans voting with democrats on the war powers major. republicans in favor lamar alexander, bill cassidy, susan collins, michael lee, jerry moran, lisa murkowski, rand paul and todd young.
we explained his position on that a short time ago. >> over the course of many decades would sing seen congress essentially forfeiting its authority to declare war and waiting for presidents to act but we believe that it's more appropriate whenever we put u.s. lives on the line. we think that congress needs to authorize that with a former declaration of war. >> this was a chance to jab at the commander in chief. >> the president will enter into the united states. but i fear that the president's erratic decision-making and his inability to control his impulses may bubble us into a war nonetheless even if he doesn't intend it. >> the house passed a separate nonbinding measure. >> what is the argument against it? >> the senate majority leader mitch mcconnell argued it would send the wrong signal to america's allies.
>> i believe it was just an effort to broadcast a political message. so what message will the senate send to american service members? well whether they are the hour own leaders or those to defend them. >> but congress has a role to play. >> our responsibility is to protect and defend but we will do that in a way that does not illuminate the power of declaring war from the congress of the united states. >> the congress will veto if the house and said to him. >> thank you for your time tod today. it did not pass and, we are going after certain terrorist
groups. why did that fail? >> i'm very disappointed that the senate didn't decide as a president commander in chief should use the armed forces to protect our country and our troops against designated terrorist organizations, that's exactly what qassem soleimani led last month. my amendment simply would have said that nothing can limit the president's authority to defend our troops, our citizens and our interests from foreign terrorist organizations. i'm disappointed that it didn't pass and i'm disappointed that the resolution passed, and this president is ready to defend of the united states for many of their terrorist plots and they should not take the risk that he did and learned the hard way last month. >> bill: and so you think the veto is in the offering, this
president does not want to start a war. but if iran threatens an action against our troops or our interest, and congress ought not to send a message to support the targeted action from last week and removing one of the vicious terrorist butchers from the face of the earth. >> bill: you are trying to make sure, i believe, that if the u.s. military wanted to target terrorist groups in iraq that had ties to iran, it would be able to do that. was that your objectives? >> that's precisely right. our commander in chief has to run to congress and get 535 approvals at a time when it would have to be a matter of minutes or even hours to strike a targeted opportunity. >> bill: chuck schumer, we heard from him a moment ago, listen to this. i will ask you a specific
question about him. >> democratic and republican senators have made that crystal clear. no president, no president can sidestep congress when it comes to matters of war and peace. >> so you have that to answer to. and that's exactly the point that you just made it. so how do we square the two? >> we killed one of the world's worst terrorist leaders last month. we are not currently invading iran or occupying a capital. as far as congress' role, i agree that congress plays an important role in keeping this country safe. the president as the commander in chief under article two of our constitution. congress has the sending power
though and if that congress doesn't like that, we can always limit their ability to spend taxpayer funds and we've done that in recent history. in vietnam, nicaragua and somalia. if congress wanted to do it, we would do it again. the response of this resolution and the democrats in this house tried to do that with iran and they failed because they didn't have the votes to do so. so instead we went with the paper resolution when what we really need in facing up against iran is iron resolution. >> bill: thank you for your time, we will see if a veto is headed your way. in a moment talking with the taliban, a new push for peace after decades of war in that country. let's next. i can't stop talking about rakuten. pretty good deal - peter sfx [blender] ebates is now rakuten, sign up today.
